Property worth almost 100 million euros was confiscated from the Italian mafia.

Italy’s Financial Guard is confiscating assets and property from a mafia group in Sicily on Friday worth 98 million euros, the security agency said.

The operation, which took place in various provinces of Sicily, the region of Lombardy, Veneto and the capital Lazio, involves 50 Fingardia employees.

The assets belong to a son and father named Siverino from the Sicilian province of Catania, who have been under arrest since 2021. Their case on charges of mafia activities has been brought to court. They systematically supported one of the local crime families by filling its “treasury” and providing “stable and long-term” support for its members. In exchange for this assistance, those arrested received “protection and assistance in expanding their business activities,” the report says.

The Siverino family was initially involved in logistics and transport in their area of ​​residence, but then “expanded their illegal activities to other areas of the national territory, diversifying it towards the petroleum products distribution sector,” Fingvardia writes.


70 real estate properties, cash worth 1.7 million euros, jewelry and valuables worth more than 250 thousand euros, banking, financial, personal and corporate assets worth 16 million euros were confiscated.
